In December of 1880, Bat Masterson takes a train from Kansas City to Dodge City. During Mastersons travels, he reminisces back on a time when he and his brother Ed worked grading track for the Atchison Topeka & Santa Fe Rail Road. While in Dodge City, he visits with friends, spends time gambling, and reflects back to 1878, when Dodge City featured an entire vaudeville show headlined by the Eddie Foy and Jimmie Thompson team. On February 2, 1881, Bat Masterson receives a Western Union Telegraph from Wyatt Earp asking him to join him in Tombstone, Arizona. This podcast is the true story of Bat Masterson's travel to Tombstone as George T. Buffum recorded it.
